Okay, so you’ve treated yourself to an NCTF treatment. Now what? Let’s talk about skincare. Regular NCTF treatments leave your skin looking and feeling its best, which is why it goes hand in hand with your at home skincare routine.
At home skin care is a crucial factor if you’re after yearlong clear, dewy, glowing skin. The healthier your skin is coming into our clinics, the more you’ll get out of your treatments and the longer lasting your results will be. Of course, what you put into your body plays a huge role on how your skin looks, but what you put onto your skin is alos just as important.
At home skincare is a crucial factor if you’re after yearlong clear, dewy, glowing skin. The healthier your skin is coming into our clinics, the more you’ll get out of your treatments, and the longer lasting your results will be. Of course, what you put into your body plays a huge role on how your skin looks, but what you put onto your skin is also just as important.
While a skincare routine may sound like a high maintenance ordeal, in reality, the steps for healthy glowing skin in between clinic treatments are not only something we highly recommend, they are also surprisingly easy to do.
Firstly, it’s important to distinguish what skin type you have and then consider exactly what you want out of a skincare routine.
- What products should I include in my routine after my NCTF treatment?
- What do these products do for me?
- How do I tailor them to my skin?
- Will I get the same results from NCTF if I don’t use them?
All at home skin care routines should include the basics; which are, a gentle cleanser and exfoliator, a rich hydrating moisturiser, a 50+ SPF broad spectrum sunscreen and, serums, which will be skin type and skin goal dependent.
We love a gentle oil cleanser and mild exfoliator. Over zealous scrubbing and harsh chemical ingredients can leave the skin feeling irritated and can also throw off the natural oil barrier resulting in flakiness, an oily T zone, and uneven skin tone.
Our NCTF is a skin booster treatment that is a unique anti-aging cocktail of 59 naturally occurring vitamins and minerals which improves pore size, skin tone and reduces fine lines. It is extremely nourishing and hydrates the skin. Hydration is key to healthy looking skin, which is exactly why we always recommend an at home moisturiser in between treatments.
Of course NCTF will work wonders without an at home skin regime, however external stressors such as extreme temperatures, air pollution and UV all contribute to dullness, dehydration and fine lines. While we cannot always control what our skin has to face, we can aid in protecting and repairing it. Serums will compliment your in clinic treatments and intensify the results. Knowing what you want out of a serum is the first step in finding the perfect one for your skin.
If you’re after additional radiance (who isn’t?), FilMed’s P Bright Serum will quickly become your new best friend. Used in conjunction with a hydrating moisturiser, your skin will be glowing.
If you’re looking to target fine lines, a serum containing hyaluronic acid and a hydration booster are the perfect additions to your skin care routine. We love FilMed HAB5 Hydra Booster for the AM and Re Time Serum for the PM.
If you have blemish prone skin, the BD Balance Serum will do quick work of targeting these specific issues and a complimentary at home glycopeel mask, 1 to 2 times a week, will also do wonders.
If you’re after firmness, AA Lift Serum is your new go to.
The easiest way to stick to a routine is by considering the time of day. In the AM, think of skin care as a preventative and protective barrier for the day ahead and in the PM, focus on cleansing and repairing the skin. Once you have a basic routine in place, you’ll be surprised how quickly your skin responds and how much more you get out of in clinic treatments!
